Asdrubal Cabrera and the liquidation of the 2017 Mets

The 2017 Mets have become a liquidation sale. Currently sitting at a season low in games under .500, the Mets wove the white flag with the trade of first baseman Lucas Duda and reliever Addison Reed. They strung the flag…Read more →

Mets trade rumors: Asdrubal Cabrera, Neil Walker clear waivers

There are lots of procedural technicalities in waiver trade season. Add Asdrubal Cabrera and Neil Walker to the list of Mets who have cleared waivers and can be traded anytime through the end of August, as Jon Heyman reports. He also mentions that AJ Ramos and Yoenis Cespedes have cleared, but they’re not in the headline above because the Mets seem unlikely to deal Ramos and incredibly unlikely to trade Cespedes. Cabrera and Walker, though, are players whose names have come up in trade rumors over the past few weeks. The Mets have an $8.5 million option on Cabrera for 2018 with a $2...

Mets Morning News: Mets come back to beat Rockies, David Wright resumes baseball activities

Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets It did not look good for the Mets when they were down 5-0 early and starter Chris Flexen was out after three innings, but the offense stormed back behind the power bats of Jay Bruce and Curtis Granderson. Asdrubal Cabrera and Michael Conforto both had multi-hit games at the top of the lineup, and Amed Rosario picked up his first RBI with a triple in the fifth. The bullpen had to do some heavy lifting after Flexen was out early and they stopped the Rockies’ in their tracks. Chasen Bradford picked up...

Mets Player Performance Meter: Position players, July 14-30

A quick review of how the Mets’ position players fared over the past two weeks After taking a week off, Meter Avenue presents an extra-long edition of the series that covers everything the Mets’ players have done since coming back from the All-Star break. The team is terrible, but there were at least some good individual performances over these past two weeks. And if there’s any enjoyment to be found in the rest of this season, it will be in those individual performances. Jay Bruce hit four home runs over this span but had just a .737 OPS. Asdrubal Cabrera hit a...

The Mets had a quiet trade deadline

The Mets had a quiet trade deadline

Four veteran rental bats will remain with the Mets through the non-waiver trade deadline. Despite going into sell mode and shipping out their closer and starting first baseman, the Mets held on to Curtis Granderson, Neil Walker, Jay Bruce, and Asdrubal Cabrera through the non-waiver trade deadline on Monday. There was close to no interest in any of the four bats, with the only nibble coming from the Brewers on Granderson a few days ago. In a vacuum, the inability to trade any of these bats is unsurprising—one need look no further than the underwhelming return for star slugger J.D....

Mets call up top prospect Amed Rosario

Mets call up top prospect Amed Rosario

It’s happening! According to Mets’ GM Sandy Alderson, top prospect Amed Rosario will join the big league club tomorrow in Colorado. Despite not moving any infield pieces at the trade deadline, Rosario is expected to slide into the shortstop position. Neil Walker, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Jose Reyes will fill in the other positions around Rosario. Heading into the 2017 season, Rosario was ranked as the Mets’ number one prospect, and topped Keith Law’s prospect rankings when the two prospects ahead of him graduated to the majors. The 21-year-old did not disappoint in his first season in...

Mets trade rumors: Mets could be very busy before deadline

Mets trade rumors: Mets could be very busy before deadline

The Mets are trying to trade a bunch of players today. The Mets could be very busy today as Major League Baseball’s trade deadline approaches at 4:00 PM EDT. Joel Sherman tweeted earlier this morning that Addison Reed will go, which has seemed obvious for a while now, and that Asdrubal Cabrera could, too. And he says the Mets are looking to deal one or both of Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce, as well as other players. Given the way this season has gone so far, that all makes plenty of sense. While some of those players could help the Mets if they were brought back this winter in free...

Mets vs. Mariners Recap: Eighth-inning rally sinks Mariners

Montero allows five, but bats stay hot to pick up the win After dropping their last two games in San Diego, the Mets got back in the win column with a 7-5 victory in Seattle. The Mets found their way on the board quickly, as Jay Bruce hit his 27th home run, a two-run shot to plate Asdrubal Cabrera in the first inning. Montero struck out Jean Segura and Ben Gamel to open the home half of the inning before Robinson Cano flew out to end the frame. Michael Conforto, playing in front of friends and family in his native state of Washington for the first time, had a big night at the plate, first...

Mets Vs Padres Recap: Flexen Flops

The Mets couldn’t overcome a rough second inning On a day when the Mets already lost their Good First Baseman, they also dropped the series finale to the San Diego Padres, losing 7-5 at Petco Park. As has been the case more this season than anyone would’ve thought, the starting pitching dug the Mets into a hole that even a late offensive flourish couldn’t get save them. The game started off with a Michael Conforto ground rule double on the first pitch of the ballgame. Luis Perdomo then walked Asdrubal Cabrera, and a fielder’s choice by Yoenis Cespedes put runners on...
